PvP Armor in 2.0? Is EWH Obsolete?

Trying to find info on this so I will ask the experts: Has Elite War Hero become obsolete in 2.0? Is there a new tier of PvP armor with new/better armorings/mods/enhancements? If so, what is the cost of said armor and what is happening to War Hero and Elite War Hero? Is EWH being reduced in price down to the cost of WH (similar to how WH now costs the same as what Battlemaster used to cost)?

Forgive me but for a number of reasons I can't go on the PTS to test right now so I am asking those who know on these forums.

Probably at 55 yeah. But EWH should be plenty fine for 50-55, imo.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

There is a new level 55 PvP gear tier with improved armorings/mods/enhancements? Do you know or are you speculating?

Speculating, but I do not see why there would not be for level 55, especially since they stated that the new PvP gear will have the expertise changes in it, and the old gear will not.

You know, I really don't mind the constant grind. This is an MMO afterall. I wan't upset when WH became the new Battlemaster. But the time lapse between the release of EWH and its obsolescence is pretty darn short in this case. Makes you wonder if it's worth the grind.

Only like 20 point difference between the regular warzone set and the ranked set "unoptimized of course". Looks like they are going to stick with the war hero/elite war hero model. The look is bad tho kind of like bugs.

I do like the minimal gap between the sets; felt the same about EWH and WH. I don't like the art direction but with the orange mod system I can pick my own look so that's cool. And it's better than the swamp thing sorc armor!

It is a little surprising that the new gear set is out so quickly after the last that's my only real "complaint" -- if you could call it that. I'm not going anywhere, of course, but it does make you wonder how far the next set is...

I appreciate the lack of gear gap as well as you can take your time and really BiS your the first set. As it stands only those that really really want the best will go for the ranked gear the rest will probably either farm it or optimize it then make a slow progression from there. Overall I am very happy with the new gear and that they are sticking with their system my worry was you would have to trade in the Elite War Hero to go to the next tier I am immensely relieved that it will NOT be like that.

Feel the same. It's nice to be able to quickly and easily go BiS at the lower tier and take your time going BiS at the higher tier. Since the WH/EWH change of equalizing gear, there have been a lot less matches where I felt gear was the deciding factor.

But dammit, Bioware, I wasn't done going BiS with EWH and you're already making it obsolete! Oh, well, rinse and repeat I guess.
